VCU CareShare volunteers

CareShare VCU is a peer-to-peer collaboration that matches VCU family volunteers (students, faculty, staff) with VCU student-parents who need support. This initiative was created by the Graduate Student Association (GSA) to address the dire need for VCU students to have protected time to complete their own schoolwork (while caring for their own children and helping them complete their schoolwork). 
At this time, we are recruiting both volunteers and parents in need. Please scan the QR code in the graphic that applies to you, or click here to volunteer or here if you are a parent in need of support. If you have any questions, please email us at We look forward to working with you.
